It’s called Coole Swan and it comes straight from the Emerald Isle. It is made with only natural ingredients: fresh Irish cream from their cows, single malt whiskey, vanilla, and Belgian chocolate. there is no caramel coloring added, thus the drink is a lovely white.
According to their web site, “The name Coole Swan was inspired by the unspoilt beauty of Coole Park in Gort, County Galway. It was immortalised in W. B. Yeats’ poem ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’.”
The drink is smooth and lightly sweet. It is delicious by itself, in coffee or in a cocktail. I prefer it in coffee before, during and after skiing.
But don’t just take my word for it…Coole Swan has won numerous gold medals in international competitions. It has developed a cult following due to its limited distribution in the U.S. It is slowly appearing on shelves, and it can be ordered from their web site (if your state allows liquor delivery which thankfully, my state does.).
Start looking and asking for it at your liquor sellers. You will be handsomely rewarded when you finally get your first sip. This is the real stuff.
